Fresh off last week’s Corona LaunchPad announcement, we now wanna put it to the test! ;-)

We’ve teamed up with our new partners,¬†InMobi and PapayaMobile, to throw the first-ever Corona SDK hackathon on Saturday, August 27 in San Francisco. The event will be an all-day affair with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and — of course — hacking! At the end of the night, we’ll have judges from Ansca (i.e. Walter and Carlos) and InMobi choose the winners.

And speaking of winners, you’ll probably love the prizes we have on deck:

  • First Place: $2500 + Corona SDK PRO subscription
  • Second Place: $750 + Corona SDK PRO subscription
  • 2 Honorable Mentions: $250 each team + Corona SDK PRO subscription

The best part? You don’t have to be near San Francisco to compete!

You see, we didn’t think it would be right if the first-ever Corona hackathon didn’t give our entire global Corona community the chance to showcase their skills and compete for prizes too. After all, we regularly see Corona-made apps succeeding¬†around the world, and there’s no reason to think those very developers can’t do the same here. So, we’ve made arrangements for virtual attendees from anywhere on the globe to come and participate in the festivities.

The cherry on top?  Tickets to attend the hackathon (whether in-person or virtually) are FREE!

Since space is limited, you must head over to our event page below to reserve tickets. You’ll also get a better look at the full details and official hackathon rules there to answer any questions…

Set the date and, if necessary, your sleep schedules — we look forward to seeing you all there! :-D

    Can I participate just as a guest? I’m really new in game programming, and I don’t have the experience to enter as a competitor. This seems to be a great chance to learn more from the pros!

    Thanks from Brazil!

    There are three of us with skills in inventing ideas, graphic skills, writing skills, some coding, and with a lot of skill & passion for launching an environmental game. We do not yet have Corona development skills, but would like to connect with developer(s) that we can team up with. Can we attend?
